Marc Spaanderman has been appointed Professor of Obstetrics at Radboud University/ Radboud university medical center, with effect from 1 March 2020. Prior to his arrival in Nijmegen, Spaanderman was professor and head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Maastricht University/Maastricht UMC+.
Marc Spaanderman (1966, Waldbauer) completed his Master's degree in Medicine at Utrecht University in 1993. He then specialised in gynaecology and obstetrics at Maastricht University, where he earned his PhD in 2001 for research into changes in cardiovascular and renal function in women before and during pregnancy. In addition to healthy women, he examined many women who had suffered from pre-eclampsia, a common cardiovascular disease during pregnancy.
Spaanderman has worked as a researcher and gynaecologist at Maastricht UMC+, the Maxima Medical Centre and Radboud university medical center. In 2012, he was appointed professor in Maastricht. His research interests include preconception counselling, high-risk pregnancy, maternal physiology, gender-sensitive cardiovascular disease and health and health education. Prevention of cardiovascular disease is the central theme in his research.
At Radboud university medical center, Prof. Spaanderman will dedicate himself to building a care and research expertise network within the scientific theme Vascular damage. That network will focus on women with an increased risk of cardiovascular dysfunction with the aim of improving and maintaining health before, during and after pregnancy. Spaanderman will also remain associated with Maastricht UMC+ as a professor and will explicitly strive for intensive and overarching cooperation between the two centres.
